2012: The Year of Graduates

 I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable New Years! This post was supposed to go live yesterday, however, Blogger decided to malfunction on me. I cannot believe it is 2012. I don't know how 2012 is going to top 2011, but here's to hoping! Something huge about 2012 is....can you guess from the list above???..... that this is the year that I graduate college. Yikes! I am getting too old (cCm also graduates high school this year). I don't have a single resolution for this year-- I've decided that since my resolutions only last a month or so, that I will just continue living my life and doing what makes me happiest and not worry about improving but rather just focusing on the great parts about my life. I'll have to recap my Christmas and New Years when I get back to school because silly me left my camera cord at school. But here are some iPhone pics to hold you all over (since I'm sure you are all so interested hah!).
 This picture doesn't do this house justice. It is near bEw's house in Virginia and I have never seen a house so decked out in Christmas lights. It was incredible. I couldn't even stand back far enough to capture the entire lot. The gentleman of the house was outside and was handing  out candy canes. He said that they hire 12 people in November and work 12 hour days just to get everything up. Intense!
 Mac is so cute when it's cold outside. He loves to snuggle and try to stay extra warm-- he is Australian after all and prefers the hot summers.
I used to play the violin and piano, well into high school even. I practiced a bit and on Christmas Eve, we all sang Christmas carols.
My grammie surprised all of the "kids" with initial embroidered koozies to use on Christmas even. I'm still using mine post-Christmas.

It finally snowed! In Virginia on New Years day I was in a short sleeved shirt outside and this was the day after on my trek back to Pittsburgh!
I made a fun little wine-related craft that I will be doing a post on as soon as I can get my pictures  onto my computer!
I got a crystal wine coaster specifically to use as a catch-all on my night stand. It adds a touch of elegance and is perfect!

I have been eating a ton of really good food. Needless to say, I'm going to need to hit the gym asap.
I saw a sorority sister at the NYE event that I attended! I love when I see friends out outside of school!
The Mellon Auditorium was absolutely stunning-- A wedding reception would be absolutely fabulous here. It was all decked out and everyone was in their NYE best!
What did you do over your holiday? Have a fabulous day!

I love so many things about this post! 2012 is certainly the year of the graduates! Just in the blog world I have met so many other girls our age! Congrats on graduating in just a few months -- I will be as well! It looks like you had a wonderful break from just your phone pictures! I love your NYE dress, too and can't wait to see your craft!
